Bailed-Out Camden Drug Kingpin Arrested for Allegedly Selling Handgun

Kyle Ogletree, 29, of Camden was served with a new indictment today accusing him of selling a KelTec 9mm semi-automatic hangun and a loaded 10-round clip to a buyer on Aug. 22, NJ’s Attorney General Jeff Chiesa says in a news release.

Ogletree is a reputed five-star general in the G-Shine set of the Bloods.

In November of 2011, a grand jury handed up an indictment charging Ogletree and 13 others of first-degree racketeering in connection with a drug ring distributing large amounts of cocaine, heroin and PCP in Camden.

Ogletree was free on bail after posting $800,000 bail in connection with the 2011 charges and was re-arrested Monday night, Dec. 17.

“We charge that this defendant, who was already indicted as the alleged head of a major narcotics network in Camden, went straight back to his criminal ways once released on bail, unlawfully selling a semi-automatic handgun,” said Chiesa in a news release. “We will be seeking an order from the court that he forfeit the original bail and that his bail be substantially increased.”

“These new charges, which carry mandatory periods of parole ineligibility, will help us keep this defendant behind bars for a long time,” said Director Stephen J. Taylor of the Division of Criminal Justice.
